the effort? joining me now is james spidermarx. so, some u.s. lawmakers said the united states should take the lead and involve itself militarily. why is syria different than let's say libya. syria certainly had a greater population, a smaller piece of geography, therefore, it's a lot more urbanized and it becomes a very entangled and tough target to go against. unlike libya that had pocket of e resistance that were spread out and there seemed to be at some point, a unified opposition against gadhafi. so that answer to the question in terms of the difference between those two. in other words, it's a tougher nut to crack, a harder problem and would entangle us greatly. >> when you say something shouldn't be done, what is that something that should be done? >> well, clearly, what has to happen is the united, let's take it from the top and work our way down. united states is going to lose in this particular confrontation if russia brokers the deal to try to get assad to step aside. russia then is the peacemaker, russia owns the cards and have now caused this great con fill in syria to go away

sales have failed. finally, the united states government should could use its considerable diplomatic influence to join with china in a leadership role to take immediate measures to end the illegal trade. china's recent actions are very welcomed, but need to be sustained over the long-term. idealy, the u.s. government could share some awareness over the situation and work for the joint leadership of china to solve the problem. if china would declare unilateral ten-year moritorium on ivory imports, it would be a better future in africa and thailand must enact serious reforms to control its ivory market. failing these needed actions, the u.s. government should ensure that those countries driving the demand are held to task at the upcoming society's conference of the parties in march 2013. maybe the u.s. should consider application of the amendment and sanctions process that law offers in cases where sight is being seriously undermined. i can think of no wildlife trade situation more serious than facing the african elephant. thank you for giving your precious time to listen to the plight
